FOSTER CARE: Why foster in 2016?

January 17, 2016

Foster carers are one of a kind. They provide a safe and nurturing environment for animals in need, all the time knowing a day will come when they watch their foster animal take confident steps into their new lives without them.

Being a foster carer is an exercise in unconditional love and selflessness, but our carers understand the vital role they play in the lives of shelter animals.

So what motivates someone to become a pet foster carer? We asked some of our foster carers to tell us why they opened their hearts and their homes to animals in need.

Become a foster carer in 2016

The Home is in need of new pet foster carers in 2016. To help, we’re calling on you to add becoming pet foster carer to the top of your New Year’s resolution list.

Foster animals come to us with unknown histories and can be more vulnerable than other dogs, cats, kittens and puppies in our care. These animals need some extra TLC before they can go on to find their new family.

Do you think you could open your heart and your home to care for companion animals needing a little extra care? With your help, we can make a difference to animals in need.

If you would like more information about becoming a foster carer in 2016, call our foster care coordinator on (03) 9321 8786.
